Summary:
More than 15 years after the discovery of an ozone hole in the stratosphere over the Antarctic, the remote continent is yielding another atmospheric surprise. A team of scientists led by the Georgia Institute of Technology has found a surprisingly high level of an air-purifying oxidizing agent in the near-surface atmosphere over the South Pole. The finding has implications for interpreting historical global climate records stored in Antarctic ice cores.
